Mayor Noble Unveils Andretta Pool House Improvements
Public Pool to Open on June 24, 2023
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble is pleased to announce that the Andretta Pool Improvements Project Phase 2 for the interior of the pool house is now complete.
The first phase of the Andretta Pool Improvements Project included the exterior of the pool house, improvements and repairs to the pool, and the addition of a splash pad. These upgrades were completed in time for the summer 2021 pool season.
Phase 2 of the project is a total renovation of the interior of the Andretta Pool House, which began in September 2022 and is now complete. The interior renovations included all new plumbing systems, all new electrical systems, upgrades to the changing rooms, the addition of a gender-neutral changing room, family toilet room and family changing room, and poolside showers and lockers.
“I am so pleased to unveil these renovations to the Andretta Pool House, just in time for the 2023 pool season,” said Mayor Noble. “The Andretta Pool has been a wonderful resource for our community, it’s a place where so many of our children have learned to swim through the years and where families gather on the hottest summer days. The repairs to the pool and pool house were much needed, and we were able to add some helpful amenities like a gender-neutral changing room, a family changing room, and outdoor showers. I am happy to open the pool free of charge to our Kingston residents again this year. I want to thank the Parks and Recreation staff for leading the renovation effort, and I look forward to many summers at the pool to come."
Lynsey Timbrouck, Director of Parks and Recreation said, “I’m so pleased that our team was able to finalize the interior renovation of the Andretta Pool House. These improvements are yet another example of how committed we are to providing safe, accessible, and modern amenities for the community to enjoy.”
The Andretta Pool Improvements Project is part of the $20 million Dietz Stadium project to renovate and modernize the stadium complex. The project was funded with $2.5 million from the City of Kingston’s $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) award. Phase 1 construction cost $719,500, and Phase 2 construction was $1,347,880.
